During our workshop, a calf was just born. The farmer shows us how he takes care of things.
- calf and mother stay together in the stress-free calving line for a few hours
- farmer checks the drinker for water
- farmer brings food for the mother immediately
- sometimes the mother also gets warm water
- cow can lick the calf clean
- the calf will be fed colostrum directly
What do you do around calving to keep mother and calf as healthy as possible? Please share your thoughts!
